Standing just over 8 1/2" tall is this wonderful blue and white parian porcelain vase with applied grapes, leaves, and tendrils was made under the direction of Christopher Webber Fenton while at Bennington from 1847-1858. These pieces were intended to compete with the fine parian porcelain so popular in England during the period. The increasing cost of cord wood to fire the kilns along with a high degree of breakage due to transport in wagons over rough dirt roads finally led to the collapse of the company. Surviving pieces are highly prized and true American pottery treasures. There are no chips or cracks to the vase, but there are losses to the leaf tips and tendrils as pictured.
